Pauline, our manager has worked in general practice for 20 years in a variety of roles including reception, medicine management and practice management, giving her wide experience in the running of a GP surgery. She is a passionate supporter of ‘care closer to home’.
After training as a nurse at Liverpool Royal Infirmary in the 70's, she decided city life didn’t agree so changed career and became a Youth Hostel Warden in Wales, before moving up to Cumbria in 1980 with her husband to help manage the Lake District Special Planning Board’s Blencathra Centre in Threlkeld. She also worked as a home support worker for the Alzheimer’s society.
A former 3 x British fell running champion she enjoys being out on the fells most weekends, but at a far more sedate pace.
